I would have to ask how are these DVDs "obviously DL'd from Archive.org"? And how do you know that they don't make donations to IA?

Also what would be the point of giving credit, would IA make anything off of that? I think not.

If you have a problem with people salling DVDs of DL'd films on EBay, take it up with them. It is not aloud in EBays TOS to sale CDR/DVDR.

BTW, do you donate to IA? If you feel so badly for the poor archive, then you should.

"I would have to ask how are these DVDs "obviously DL'd from Archive.org"? "

From the content and selection of available videos.

"And how do you know that they don't make donations to IA?"

And what does this have to do with the price of tea in China?

"Also what would be the point of giving credit, would IA make anything off of that? I think not."

Are you serious? How could increased exposure and credit NOT help IA? Someone sees that IA is the source, stops by, decides to support them via a donation.

"If you have a problem with people salling DVDs of DL'd films on EBay, take it up with them. It is not aloud in EBays TOS to sale CDR/DVDR."

I'm not an agent of IA and it's not within my authority to police eBay. I was just curious as to why an IA agent WASN'T. Unfortunately though, the quality and tone of responses here indicates that the rats have over run the sugar pile. :-(

"BTW, do you donate to IA? If you feel so badly for the poor archive, then you should."

As a matter of fact, I do. And for someone who seems to soak up alot of their resources Mr. Roach, I certainly hope you do as well.

I guess I do, so heres another one:

http://www.archive.org/details/CAT_PEOPLE

When naval construction designer Oliver Reed (Kent Smith) sees Serbian born beauty Irena Dubrovna (Simone Simon) at a zoo, he flirts with her, and soon they fall in love and marry. Complications arise because Irena believes she is the victim of an ancient Serbian curse that causes her to turn into a panther if a man tries to make love to her, and the marriage is not consummated. Oliver sends Irena for treatment with psychiatrist Dr. Louis Judd (Tom Conway), and Oliver seeks "consolation" with his colleague Alice Moore (Jane Randolph). Irena becomes jealous when she learns that she may be losing Oliver to Alice.

I'm not sure what you mean by that, I upload as much as I download. IA is a great place for my wants and needs.
And yes, they have gotten part of my income.
